Similar to how new members can sign up for membership, current prospects and non-members in your system can also accomplish this.
If they create an account and have a login to the website, they can do it right from their Member Compass.
Once they are in their Member Compass, they will see the following "Interested In A Membership? Join Now!" message.
Note: For trade associations, only individuals with management access are permitted to sign their non-member or prospect company up for membership.
Once they click Join Now, they are taken through the following three steps:
Member Type: This section allows the new member to select the member type that best applies to them. Only member types set to show on the frontend appear here, unless the applying member is a prospect currently in a "hidden" member type.
They will also only see member types that apply to their current setup situation.
For example, if John Smith is the primary contact of non-member ABC Company, John Smith will be able to sign the company up for membership. John Smith cannot, however, sign himself into an individual member type (unless John himself was a prospect in an Individual member type)
Key Info: The user will then be prompted to fill out the applicable Key Information fields that you have decided needs to be asked of them.
Checkout: Once the user fills out the appropriate information, they are then asked to checkout for the membership renewal.
Once checkout was successful, the member will see one of the following messages:
If you require approval on the member type...
If you do not require approval on the member type...
